Preparing the shelter animals for torrential rain
Thursday, 13 April 2017 00:00

With storms, torrential rain, power cuts, wind and flooding predicted, we have spent the day securing the hatches and making sure our shelter animals will be as safe and as comfortable as possible.

Please bring any animals indoors tonight. Set up toileting areas, food and water and a cosy place to sleep/hide.

Volunteer Samantha is pictured with our bunnies Ghost and Sweet Pea with their indoor storm enclosure - which is up on trestles in case of flooding.

Ban live animal exports. Please sign the petition

Shipping live animals to overseas destinations causes them immense suffering - both during the harrowing journeys and (if they survive) at their destination.

Please sign and share this petition. Thank you.

Help sell this van to give Pablo a home
Thursday, 30 March 2017 00:00

For Pablo's sake, please share this post widely.

Pablo has been staying at a boarding kennel for over a year now. He would thrive if he lived with our lovely volunteer, Hayley, and Hayley would love to adopt him - but this isn't possible until her mobile dog grooming van has been sold and a suitable property purchased.

If that happens before an ideal caregiver is found for him, Pablo will finally have a place to call his own.

Farewell to volunteer Wendy
Friday, 17 March 2017 00:00

When Wendy arrived in New Zealand for a 6 month holiday with her family, one of the first things she did was apply for a volunteering position with us. How lucky we and our animals are to have had her dog-walking and shelter help since October.

Sadly Wendy returns to the UK on Monday and will be sorely missed. However, she assures us she will return to NZ before long… and we can’t wait to welcome her back!

BON VOYAGE dear Wendy! Huge thanks for all the assistance and love you bring to humans and animals alike….

Awesome Angie creates long-line leashes
Thursday, 09 March 2017 00:00

We are very grateful to Angie who has kindly been volunteering for us for 18 months now.

She has been shopping and putting her creative talents to excellent use. Angie has made six long-line leads so that our dogs can go swimming and have some extra freedom without getting into trouble.

You rock Angie!

Animals can ease our grief
Wednesday, 01 March 2017 00:00

A little girl in grief at the loss of her beloved cat friend releases her pain and is comforted by the arrival of a kitten.

One of our fosterers has many rescued kittens awaiting adoption as soon as they are old enough... and we have many, many more beautiful adult cats who have been waiting much too long for a loving home to call their own.

Beautiful Baylie has been adopted
Tuesday, 28 February 2017 00:00

It’s with a joyful heart that we announce 10-year-old Baylie’s happy ending.

She is now fully immersed in a cheerful, stimulating home with an extended family of eight people and a canine friend for company. Her human friends range in age from 3 years old to 84 years… and they are all tripping over themselves for turns to feed and walk her. We are so delighted that everyone has fallen in love with our beautiful girl.

Baylie has established herself as the doggy matriarch with resident Boxer Rocco, and visiting Retriever Mikko both respecting her senior position.

Not only does Baylie have an ideal retirement home; she also has a new lease of life! Lucky Baylie, lucky family! How we love a happy ending…

Note from Baylie's original mum:
"I cannot thank you enough for all the time, energy and goodwill you have put into helping us re-home Baylie. Your care and concern for our canine companions humbles me - we are all most fortunate to have such a hard-working and kind-hearted soul as yourself working on behalf of our furry friends".
